Roman Greek Tombstone of Jason, the Physician Artifact Carved Sculpture Statue 6" www.Neo-Mfg.com
SIZE: 6" x 4.5" wide
Marble tombstone of an Athenian physician called Jason, shown examining the swollen belly of a child.
Jason is shown seated on a cushioned stool, bearded and draped. He examines a patient, who appears to be a child with an unnaturally enlarged stomach.
To the right is an egg-shaped object resembling a cupping vessel.
In translation the inscription reads:
'Jason, also known as Decimus, of the Archarnian deme [an administrative division of Athens] a physician . . .'. It then goes on to mention other members of his family.
The top of the relief is worked into a series of mock architectural antefixes.
